Directed by Michael Dudok de Wit
Rated PG, 80 minutes, DCP
Another striking animated feature with ties to Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, this film pulls in an European element with British-Dutch Michael Dudok de Wit co-writing and directing. Deeply allegorical, the film’s simple plot and lack of dialogue allows the striking visuals to take the limelight. Fans of Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and other Studio Ghibli films should find engrossing the film’s adventures of a castaway who finds himself on an island looking for purpose.
